Intoxicated

I am intoxicated!

No, it's not booze and it's not the 30 mile bike / 10k run brick workout on Saturday morning. Nor is it the 6:41 pace/mile at the Thomas G. Labrecque Classic 4-miler on Sunday.

It's the smell of new Asics shoes. Go ahead and stick your nose in... I know you want to and I know you've done it too.

Take a deep breath and inhale the possibility, inhale the speed, inhale victory!

i second that!! i just got a pair of the brand-spanking new Cumuluses and I think they are gonna be my new favorite shoe :)

Nice job Sunday-and I think I spotted you again before the start!! One of these days, we are actually gonna have to say hi to each other...

Who needs new car smell when you can have new shoe smell every couple of months? ;-)

Deene said...

yeah, better than new car smell.

Somehow I don't think Hugo was talking about... shoes! ;)

Just visiting from Just Run.

Uh, no thanks, but I'll take the 6:41 pace if you're giving that away.

Better to smell new shoes than shoes after a race...just catching up on your blog. Loved the baby blurb!
